I haven't been on here in ages! D:

Anyway, here are a few of the bottles I've made. The first two are a couple of my earlier ones, and the ink ran when I stained the paper. I fail.

I figured out a better aging/staining method with the last one. At least you can read the fine print, which is helpful when dealing with corrosive green slime with the potential to trigger a zombie apocalypse. ;)

Lots of historic printed paper, or paper with hand writing, features ink that has bled, faded or otherwise deteriorated, because some inks were not waterproof, just like today. Some were, yes, and waterproof ink was the best, but personal writing ink and cheap printing press ink was notorious for this look as recently as the early 1970's. They also smeared with handling, even after drying, or faded due to exposure to light or moisture.

These look fantastic, don't worry about.
